The Shrivers’ Story Eyewitness to the Battle of Gettysburg is now available in “Kindle Edition”.

The Shrivers’ Story: Eyewitnesses to the Battle of Gettysburg is the true story of one family who happened to call Gettysburg ‘home’ in 1863.... The story of George and Hettie Shriver, although certainly fascinating and unique in its own way, is more typical of the average Gettysburg citizen’s, and by extension, provides a fuller picture of the overall civilian experience itself before, during and after the Battle of Gettysburg.

In addition the book details the trials and tribulations encountered during the restoration of the Shrivers’ home, which had been abandoned for nearly thirty years, before opening as the Shriver House Museum.
